honor Band Z1

26 January 2016 – honor today launched its first smartband, the honor Band Z1 featuring a deceptively simple design paired with advanced and intelligent technology. The Band Z1 is the perfect accessory for active and trendy users on-the-go, thanks to its subdued and understated look.


Elegant and refined look

Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism that takes inspiration from nature, practicality, and appearance – the surface of the Band Z1 is devoid of any buttons, which in turn accentuates the simplicity of its circular surface.

To create the tough yet refined look that is the Band Z1, steel is used as its main material. A combination of CNC machining, hand polishing and sand polishing techniques were used to achieve the stylish finish. It is also scratch resistant and durable enough to withstand your active lifestyle Additionally, the beautiful strap makes it elegant enough to be worn for a night out with friends.


Convenient Notifications

The 1.06 inch 128 x 128 pixels resolution touchscreen on the Band Z1 features a touch-sensitive button-free operation. Access your notifications, alarms and the clock with just a simple swipe. Plus, the soft-lit PMOLED screen is unique as it is vivid enough when in a darkened area – such as a cinema or a club – yet is legible enough in sunlit locations as well.

With its large display and ample memory, the honor Band Z1 supports caller display and allows you to read messages and emails. It currently supports English, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Japanese.


Accurate health tracking

Thanks to the high accuracy G-sensor, as well as honor’s advanced algorithm software, the honor Band Z1 can automatically detect and log your walking, running or sports activities accurately. The data recorded includes number of steps taken, calorie consumption, exercise time and distance – all this without the need to install any app on the smartphone.

In addition, the capacitive sensor and Polysomnography (PSG) can intelligently distinguish between wake and sleep, as well as taking users’ light and deep sleep states. Thanks to the design of the Band Z1, it will not leave any compression marks on the wrists as you sleep since it fits the curvature of the wrist perfectly.


Premium and smart functions in one

[adrotate banner=”4″]The bracelet strap material is stain-resistant and comes in three different colours – Classic White, Classic Black, and Cream. Thanks to precision design and manufacturing, the honor Band is IP68 certified, making it dust-proof and waterproof to a depth of 1.5 m

As for platform support, the honor Band Z1 supports Android 4.4.4 and above for non-Huawei smartphones, Android 5.0 and above for Huawei smartphones, as well as iOS 7.0 and above. It has a standby battery life of up to 14 days, or 3 days of continuous use on a single charge.
